There are no activation fees for the Prepaid Data plans, for any carrier. If you go with a Flex Rate plan, like the previous poster mentioned, then it's treated like a cell phone or even another mobile internet device, and there is a $35 activation since it's a postpaid plan.Telus hasnt released lte plans yet but fine print says no activation fee for iPads.
Telus and Bell run a HSPA+ network together, so coverage is gonna be comparable either way you go.I'm getting a Telus micro sim with my order, but just saw on Bell's site that they are waving the activation fee and including a micro sim free if you sign up before 31Mar. Might give them a try for a month or two to see how good their network is. But I like Telus' flex plans better as they have the $20/250-500Mb that Bell doesn't offer as I'm sure I'd go over 250Mb each month, but should be able to stay below 500Mb most of the time.
1. Rogers LTE flex rate plans and data share plans will support tethering thus turning it into a hotspot.where does it say this? effin rogers....
1. Rogers LTE flex rate plans and data share plans will support tethering thus turning it into a hotspot.
2. As for customers who are currently on 3G data plans Theyll need to speak to a rep about options for transferring to an LTE plan as each plan could have a different outcome based on the account details.
3. Personal hotspot costs tethering is included in the cost of the plans *edited* All data plans can tether regardless of data bucket size.
4. On device plans are not LTE enabled.
5. Existing iPhone users with the 6Gb/$30 plan should speak to a rep about sharing and pricing details as each account could vary.
So, if you sign up with for the 250MB/$15 or 5GB/$35 plan directly on the iPad, no LTE for you. Just DC-HSPA max.

If you sign up directly on the iPad in settings like the screenshot, you won't get LTE regardless if you have an LTE Micro SIM.Can't understand 4. - but their website confirms it by putting LTE next to the other plans and not the iPad activated ones. Looks like I'm with Bell...
Bell hasn't said otherwise. They did say that if you are on an iPad data plan with a normal SIM that you could get the account moved over to an LTE SIM at no cost. If you chose an Bell SIM with you iPad WiFi+4G, it will be LTE enabled.I'm going with Bell. But... are they definitely LTE with iPad activated accounts?
